MTNOPS 2009-2010 Merican Jacket

12 Jan, 2009

Every year there are fewer American made snowboard products but for 2009-2010 MTNOPS is launching their products straight out of the United States.

Here’s the latest from Mark Sullivan on the upcoming line, “The jacket featured in this promo is called the Merican – and we will show the only american made gear like this at the show (SIA). We also have a womens version as well called the Valkyrie.”

Stay tuned for more as SIA is quickly approaching.

In September I went through my closet to see where my snowboard products were made, only MTNOPS and Never Summer were made in the United States. Check out your labels to see what countries you support…it might surprise you.
